This is awesome. I beat my goal by 100 points vs last week. #micdrop #choosehappiness #thankyoujesus #weightlossjourney #abouttime
Sounds good to me. In this ugly society of school shootings our hearts ache for those who had their entire lives blown apart Friday morning. As much as I feel that society is living through the book of revelations shows me more than ever that I need to be square with God and Christ. #thankful #christian #imgay #choosehappiness #choosewisely
#woah that’s me. #mindovermatter our own mirrors are cruel. To the outside world we shine bright. #choosehappiness #weightwatchers #weightloss #healthy

Michael Phelps: ‘I am extremely thankful that I did not take my life’ – CNN

The “hardest fall” was after the 2012 Olympics, said Phelps. “I didn’t want to be in the sport anymore … I didn’t want to be alive anymore.”
What that “all-time low” looked like was Phelps sitting alone for “three to five days” in his bedroom, not eating, barely sleeping and “just not wanting to be alive,” he said.
Finally, Phelps knew he needed help.

    Another great reminder that mental illness can happen to anyone, no matter how good their life looks from the outside.

    1. Thank you Ash! Totally agree. Thank you Michael for speaking publicly. He lost a lot over the years but he always redeemed himself in the water. Now he’s redeeming his mental health and that’s really what shines through.
